Autumn has come, but what has it brought?

As the leaves began to change at Helmgorge, so did the moods of many of the dwarves.  Many of the couples were expecting new additions to our colony.  I hope that some new migrants will come to freshen up the place.  Still, we have seen little of the ever-present  enemy in the wilderness.  Our only enemy… is Freddie Mercury.

I attempted to meet with Freddie in her more lucid periods, but she wanted nothing to do with me.  We installed one of our only artifacts that I could find in her bedroom / Throne room, and it only brought the quality up the Opulent, as she called it.  I was even more frustrated with her, as she was apparently with her dining room.  I tried to spruce the place up, but to no avail was it suitable to her needs.  Quickly, I was pulled away from our meeting when I heard that Kent Hrbek was in a strange mood.  With our recent losses of Erush and Fletcher, I knew it wasn’t to be taken lightly.

Our craftsdwarves hadn’t faired well lately, but hopefully we’ll be able to satisfy Kent’s needs.  In the meantime, a caravan arrived.

I was able to parlay some plump helmets, for which we ran out of for some reason.  I also took all of the wood and metals they had.  Everything else was pretty worthless.  Actually, I grabbed some cheese too, because I had hoped a more royal meal would satisfy the queen, but alas she could not be satisfied…

After another chair and a section of floor were destroyed, I just didn’t know what to do anymore with the damnable Freddie Mercury.  I told her to go to the sculpture garden and sort out her problems and we’d work on her shit as much as possible.  She didn’t take it well, but we are only dwarves and have limited resources.  I told her to bring some mangoes next time!

Kent Hrbek came to me and thanked me profusely for having all that he needed for his construction, or at least that’s what I think he said.  He sat down and started crafting away…

And Esudist was created:

And needless to say we were ecstatic about it! I was surprised he even had it in him.  We chatted about how he was feeling and everything just spilled out…

Needless to say, here is the queens mood, who happened to stomp by and spit in my face:

In the midst of the chaos of the Helmgorge, I heard a rumor that another person was coming to replace me.  Since we are unable to attract any more migrants, at least I knew it wouldn’t be this season.  I didn’t know the dwarf, but I hoped that people could hold it together until he arrived so I could so him around the majesty.  We definately have the new editions:

But alas, the end of autumn, with the days shortening and the crops slowing down, this was brought upon us:

Armok help us.
